Manjaro 0.8.2 XFCE: Light, fast and works well, new Package manager aside

Filed under
Linux

The flagship distro from the Manjaro stable is perhaps the XFCE version. I was deeply impressed by the refinement and functionalities offered by KDE version. The XFCE version, too, lived up to the standards set in 0.8.1 release. I tested it out on my Asus K54C, 2.4 Ghz Core i3 processor with 2 GB RAM. First I did a live boot followed by installation on an 8 GB partition specially created for Linux distro testing.

XFCE 4.10 is the desktop environment with Linux kernel 3.4.18 in this edition. The desktop looks really bright and has a really good looking conky! New wallpaper is also better than the previous default wallpaper. The 32-bit ISO is 1.2 GB and lower in size than the 0.8.1 release (1.5 GB).
